Lovely food and excellent service! Our waiter Brayden was extremely engaging. His recommendation from the menu was enjoyed by all and the generous portions could have fed him as well.

Lovely staff & great food. My son who is 10 loved it. The 190 gins are amazing. Very busy but service quick. Only thing I didn’t like was that it was freezing due to door continually opening to outdoor service.

Description
Don't expect anything too posh, that’s not how we roll. We’re into good times and great food. Like a bull in a china shop, our passion for classic dining and fine drinks is out of control. Like our name suggests, everything we do is a little bit tipsy. From our food to our drinks, you can trust that we’ll have you saying ‘holy cow!’ Whether you’re after a quick bite or a long night, we’ll serve you up our twists on the classics and a curveball or two. Our share plates are a circus of flavours. Each performs a more amazing trick than the last. And like the best pop groups of the ‘90s, it’s hit after hit. Whether you want just a little or a beast of a feast we’ve got your covered. Let our cocktails wash over you and the good times roll in. Or sip into something more comfortable from our wine list.
